If you find one, let me know! It also has to be cheap!

I have a little 6" 12 vdc portable I paid $29 for years ago. I'm thinking about just getting a digital adapter box for that.

No idea on the price but our Wolf Pack came with a Venturer 19" LCD HD TV. It is ment to run on 120V. It has a 120V to 12V DC power supply. I just made a cord that plugs into power jack on the TV and get 12V from the antenna booster power supply. Works great when dry camping.

If you look at the specs for a lot of tv's you'll find that they use a 12v power adapter. The best way to find out is to visit one of your local big box stores and look at the adapter and if it says "input 120vac" "output 12vdc" you can get a 12vdc power cord from Radioshack or the likes to power it from your 12vdc outlet in the RV.

Bama...

Funny you should mention "12 vdc outlet in the RV" because there is only one in my 5th wheel, and I had to put that in myself!

Why is that? Don't the boys in the factory design groups know we are going CAMPING in these things?

Check out roadtrucker.com. I was hoping that Santa would bring me a 12v TV, but apparently he is cutting back on the gifts this year.

Our Surveyor came with a 12v receptacle in the bedroom area TV shelf, but not in the living area where the other cable receptacle is…..guess I am going to just have to run a wire myself for this……whenever we get a TV.

Wow! I didin't realize they'd stopped putting them in! Ours has one at each tv location and one in the kitchen area. I guess they figured we all use them to sit in the yard and look pretty.

12v digital tv

Check your local target store for the Poliroid 15" or 19" and with dvd player. You will need to do like Bama Rambler said and get an adapter cord. My boss is using this set up in his trailer just watch the heat on the cable and connection.
